The campus is located in ITO in East Delhi near Indraprashta Estate.  The SPA residential campus on the other hand is located in New Friends Colony and the girl’s hostel is located in Indraprastha Estate.  A 20 acre site has been dedicated for building the new campus near JNU.
SPA has two separate buildings. The ‘Planning’ building is equipped with air-conditioned lecture rooms and excellently maintained facilities which more than makes up for the diminutive campus size. The ‘Architecture’ building is located on the outer ring-road. The volleyball court is located on the entrance of the college. The building is spacious and has good infrastructure. The architecture classrooms, called studios, are spacious and well-equipped. The campus is Wi-Fi enabled and has an air-conditioned library. The ‘Planning’ building also accommodates a girls’ hostel.
The university has a well-experienced faculty. The professors’ conduct lectures in a cooperative style.  They conduct lectures in English, but some of the lecturers do like to use the native language to explain a point better.  However, the important part to note here is that most of the time, the faculty is very accessible, and students rarely face any difficulty in interacting with them
The School of Planning and Architecture does provide placements to its students, but not regularly or completely.  However, just like IITs, SPA New Delhi also rules the roost in terms of campus placements. SPA is the best college for architecture, and finding work is not very difficult.
